Christine Barnes For State Representative 


Canidate Christine E. Barnes

I am excited to announce my candidacy for State Representative.  I have been overwhelmed by the number of people who have encouraged me to run given how close that last November’s election was, and the common sense approach to government I promote and believe in.


I was the Republican nominee for State Representative in November of 2018 and was very narrowly defeated. 
Having grown up in Delta Township and being here most of my life in Eaton County, I feel compelled to work and serve locally. My experiences serving those in our community thru CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate), Labor of Love, Meals on Wheels, the Kiwanis Club of Grand Ledge Area, Stevens Ministry, Eatran Board and the National Wild Turkey Federation has afforded me the opportunity to meet many of our friends and neighbors. Being elected as the State Representative for the 71st district would extend that service to more families that need a voice.”

I am ready to bring the same level of work ethic to my campaign as I did when I was elected to the Eaton County Commission and when I sought this office two years ago.  I am an advocate of common sense solutions and working with those that are willing to find sensible solutions to removing as much bureaucracy between Government and it's constituents.


Please check back often for future updates.


Your Friend,

Christine Barnes
